Been coming to this coffee shop for years. Great iced coffee drinks and affordable breakfast. Sad that the "boys" have decided to move to Starbucks. Come on guys support a local shop!

Best chocolate cake ever. And the breakfast bagel is delicious. The girl attending the place is just so sweet too.

The coffee is superb and the food is quite good. But, it's hard to enjoy because the large TV on the wall is often blaring soap operas. That generally the case when a very rude waitress is working. Usually, I don't go in when I...see she is working. However, at other times there is nice music playing when another friendly waitress is working which is much nicer when you are dining with another person.More

Fruit Smoothies are amazing! Also the iced chai with an espresso shot on a warm day. Very friendly place!

This is was an accidental find that was introduced to me by 2 angles that found me walking around early one morning looking for coffee in the empty streets of Puerto Vallarta. It is a nice little coffee shop that offer all the classics. The...part I like best was the outside seating that allowed you to sit cozily by the street and people watch as the day got going with the hustle and bustle. Very simple, go in, order, wait for your coffee at where ever you choose to sit, and pay when your ready to leave. Coffee was good and service was genuinely friendly as well as attentive when needed. I was glad those ladies found me and introduced me to this place. I will definitely go back again next time we visit Puerto Vallarta.More

If you’re checking out old Vallarta or heading to the Malecon and need a little java or a bite to eat, drop by the Coffee Cup. Coffee varieties are reasonably priced as are the sandwiches (wraps, bagel BLTs etc) in this narrow shop which seems...to do a brisk carry out as well as eat in trade. Sandwiches come with crisps/chips. There’s free WiFi (code on the wall) if you care to linger....More

We've been spending about 1/2 of the year in Puerto Vallarta for over 20 years and are always on the search for great coffee shops. One of our favorite drinks is a "dirty chai latte". It is difficult to find one that is great, but...we've recently discovered that The Coffee Cup located on Calle Rudolfo Gomez is, without a doubt, the best in the city. They use a powdered form of chai which, I think, is the secret to a great latte. Give them a try!More

This is for us the very best coffee in Vallarta, hands down. If what you like is coffee that is richer and stronger than the starbuck varieties, then you've found your cafe! The owner buys the best coffee Mexico produces and keeps his coffee machines...clean. Service is always with a smile. The food is remarkable, considering it is produced in a tiny kitchen. This is not a large space, but there are comfortable chairs and tables inside and outside. Good ambiance for conversation and meeting new friends.More

I have to have coffee in the morning and preferably good coffee! The Coffee Cup was a perfect place to stop each morning for my fix! The free WiFi was nice too! If you’re looking for a place with great breakfast the Coffee Cup is...the place!More
